Globally, BASF is conducting research on innovative cathode materials for high-performance lithium-ion batteries that make electromobility a reality.  The cathode materials usually consist of mixed metal oxides. In the first step of the synthesis, various metal salts are precipitated using sodium hydroxide.   Physical laboratory technician Joerg Mai (left) and chemist Dr. Daniela Pfister (right) examines a sample of metal hydroxides and discuss the next steps: The particle size distribution of the sample is determined using analytical methods. This parameter influences essential properties of the end product.

Chemistry for a sustainable future

Aparna Sri Vanguri, Senior Associate Scientist in the transformation group, examines young transgenic corn plants that have been inoculated with Agrobacterium. Agrobacterium is a common soil bacterium that has developed an ability to cleanly transfer genetic material into plant cells. Corn cells that have been successfully transformed may carry the desired new trait, such as resistance to fungal pathogens or herbicides.

Wheat from and for the Future

The wheat plants that grow in the greenhouse of the BASF Innovation Center in Ghent may well be the answer to the increasing demand for food. And all this thanks to their unique genetic code.

Alliance to End Plastic Waste

Together with 30 other companies, BASF has joined forces to put an end to plastic waste in the environment.
